I am the author of 27 books. I have written extensively for The New York Times, Family Circle, and Good Housekeeping and served as an editor at several national publications, including Cosmopolitan.

Kensington Publications will publish the fourth novel in my Happy Hoofers Mystery series at the end of April this year. It stars five women tap dancers who solve murders while performing on cruise ships, luxury trains and resorts.

Bossa Novas, Bikinis, and Bad EndsIt's called Bossa Novas, Bikinis, and Bad Ends and takes place at the Copacabana Palace in Rio de Janeiro. The mysteries are suspenseful and funny, full of music, laughter and the friendship of five women.
